Q: Basic Help

Does anyone know of a good website where I can get pretty simple instructions on how to wipe out a hard drive then reload the OS from the ground up?

I know how to format a hard drive, but I'm real iffy on how to get things going after that.

Any help would be appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Basic Help

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Basic Help

If you're talking about just formatting and installing, when you put the installation CD in, assuming you have one of those, during setup, it'll ask you whether or not, and how you want to format the drive.
Select format, and you're golden, setup will continue with the installation.
Peace.

Windows 8 is the default and only OS on this laptop. Please do not suggest restore or backups - they do not exist.

I am trying to reinstall a fresh Windows 7 back into this laptop for dual boot purposes. I have a Win7 ISO all ready to go on a flash drive. The problem is... I cannot get the 20GB "Windows Seven (S " drive to convert from dynamic to basic. THere is no data to backup, Im tryiong to do a fresh install. Ive been trying for two weeks.

Why am I trying to do this? Because I just want to get a copy of Win7 back on here to fall back upon when Redmond pulls the auth key for Win8 Dev

This is the status of my drives. Theres one.. its 465GB System has 200MB and Win8 is on C with 465GB. THIS is a Dynamic Drive. I know C cannot be made basic. I know Windows wontr install on anything but Basic.

How do I either 1. Fix this so I can install Windows 7 onto a new partition of 20-25GB OR 2. create a new drive for this?

I know how to create and shrink and delete all that Ive tried all this Data Partition - Windows 7 Forums and its other tuts but I cant get around the Dynamic. I dont want to pay 30 bucks for a tool either -- there must be a way to do this and I put my hopes in the Windows community to bail me out (if you have android troubles, i may be able to help )

Use free Partition Wizard bootable CD version 4.2 which still has non-destructive Dynamic>Basic conversion as a free feature: pw422.zip ISO - Windows Live

Backup a WIn8 System image and your files, Boot CD, Rightclick on the HD to convert. Create/Resize your partitions as you wish.

Adapt these tips for getting a perfect Win7 reinstall: Reinstalling Windows 7

Win7 should configure a Dual Boot menu, if not use EasyBCD to add Win7 after install. Earlier versions of Easy are still free.

Hi everyone,

I've been trying to get my feet wet in creating a .vbs file from notepad to do a basic function. I wanted to be able to run .reg files remotely but also interactively. This led me down the path of simply finding an example of a .vbs that would open anything remotely at all. Notepad is what came up with the most results and the Win32_ScheduledJob object appeared to be what was needed.

I researched many different places but this is a decent walkthrough. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa394601(v=vs.85).aspx

Hello,

I guess my question can be asked in two ways, the short way and the long way.

Here's the short one:

Can you do everything that you can do with VBA with VB?
The long one is:

I need to be able to write programs that conceivably invovle web forms/web services (VB right?), Microsoft SQL Server 2002 (VB again right?) but also Microsft Office applications like Excel and Access (VBA??). Does that mean I need to learn both Visual Basic and Visual Basic for Applications? In my initial research into Visual Basic I've learned that Visual Basic for Applications is a subset of Visual Basic, so shouldn't that mean that Visual Basic, being the parent and more powerful than Visual Basic for Applications, is capable of performing all of the functions that Visual Basic for Applications does?

Thanks for your help,
Bsdslayer

A:Solved: Visual Basic vs. Visual Basic for Applications

I do not know VB at all, only some VBA. The main difference is that VBA has words specifically for the applications, a classic exanple would be the
Range("a65536").End(xlUp)
both range and .End(xlUp) are for use in Excel.

I recently got a new computer which came with a DVD Burner. I have a few questions...

**It is important to note that I am NOT trying to rip or make copies of actual physical discs that I own (which seems to be what 99.9% of all of the advice online is about). I don't own any DVD's really, I am working with files I have on my hard drive, downloaded files***

First of all, is there a certain file type (ie: .avi, .mpeg, etc...) that I should be looking for that works best for burning DVDs? I know that when i used to burn audio discs there were a lot of different file types (ie: wav, mp3, etc..) but it was the mp3's that you needed to burn music discs for regular audio players. What filetype do i need to burn regular video discs to be played in regular (non computer related) DVD players?
Secondly, can anyone recommend any shareware that I can use to actually create/burn the DVD's after I have them physically downloaded on my machine? My DVD burner drive came standard on my HP machine, and so I woulda thought they would have included a burning software, but it appears they didn't. I have one that burns audio discs, but not video. Can anyone recommend a free (and very simple) program that can take downloaded files and burn them onto a blank DVD disc to be played on a standard DVD player?

Your help would be greatly appreciated and in advance thank you!

A:some basic help please

If it will help you, C drive is always your operating system drive, you do not want to mess with it. It is where windows 7 is located and where you normally install programs. D drive is a data drive - it is where many people place their data. That would be used for things like your my documents, my photos, my music etc. You would do that for several reasons. If your system becomes corrupted or inoperable you would not lose some of your most valuable things. Some things like family photos, many of your documents and such are difficult to replace. It also saves space on your C drive. If your system becomes inoperable, it will most likely be the operating system. That and your programs can be replaced. Without knowing, I cannot tell you about the Q drive.

Who installed your operating system? If Asus installed it, it could be a recovery partition or something, but usually they are not given a drive letter like Q. If Asus installed it, there should be an explanation in your owners manual.

I would suggest that when you first come on this site look in the very top on the right side. There is an extensive collection of tutorials. They are written by members of this forum and are very good. You can learn many things that you can do with windows 7.

If that does not help, you come back but you should provide us with an image of disk management. You can get there by typing disk manahement into the search box when you click on the windows button on the bottom left of your screen. then... Read more

I need some help with my Visual Basic class. I am a student, but have done all of the coding, so no coding is needed. I just need some troubleshooting with the coding itself. I cannot get the correct alignment I need in my listboxes. Once you see the coding, you will understand what it is that I need, especially if you are decent in VB. In the first and second listboxes, the content is not properly aligned. I need the text to be perfectly aligned from top to bottom.

I have included the zipped file for those who wish to help to view. You will need Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition or Higher, I think.

Slowly starting to restore all my programs that ran on WinXP.
Seems most of the *.exe programs are running but a few that didn't run I tried to reconstruct them and it appears I need some more dll's. I can't remember if there were 2 CD's that came with VB6 PE. Before I start tearing my computer room apart to find a 2nd disk I thought I would ask here about a 2nd disk.

If you are trying to install the VB6 IDE on a 64-bit version of Windows 7, you are probably out of luck (short of creating a 32-bit virtual machine and installing VB to that image). Here's a link that might help - Support Statement for Visual Basic 6.0 on Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008

PS - the download info from MSDN indicates that the VB6 Enterprise Edition is definitely on 2 disks.

Technology is not my gift in life, so I have a really simple question:

at home, I have an older desktop that is connected to DSL. I just got a new Lenovo notebook and want to be able to use it with a wireless network. Do I also HAVE TO buy a card for the desktop? I want the DSL access on both computers, but don't need wireless on the desktop. Am pretty sure it is too old to have a card, and don't want to have to buy one if there is a way to avoid it. Have not bought the router yet...
Thank you very much.

Question 1 please. When I move abroad (Philippines) from Oman shortly, do I have to have my computer set up in any different way once I am there, or do i just plug in and carry on?

A:Two Basic Questions For Those Who Know!

Hi John.Voltage is 220v-240v standard. Some hotels have 110v for us dumb americans. Outlets on the walls, by american standards, are weird looking. Buy your adapter there if needed. I don't know what they look like in Jordan but here is an example for the Philippines.Anything you take with you as far as your system is concerned obviously doesn't change. Backing up your data isn't an issue with the stuff you already have. You will run across some issues with any new equipment you purchase there though.An example would be DVD region coding. If you currently have a home dvd player (not computer), it is most likely region 2 locked and will not play a store bought dvd movie purchased in the Philippines as they are region 3. Blank media doesn't apply of course. As far as your internet provider and physical modem connection is concerned, I'm clueless. And No 2. How do I put all my computer info/files etc on to hard disc as a security measure and will any type of CD do the jobBurn your data files on any cd\dvd you want. I'll assume you already know how to do that. Pretty basic stuff. If it were me, I'd also do a complete system backup on a secondary drive in case your computers HD is damaged in transit.

Basically, it started because my Word didn't work. I left my laptop for a while and came back to find that the theme was very basic (think it's windows 7 basic, not the aero one), I tried to change the theme because that's what I thought the problem was. I couldn't change the theme and then later discovered that I couldn't access my internet browser, I have connection because I'm posting this on my other computer. I can go on applications but no Microsoft ones, I don't know why this has happened.

Thanks.

Hey,
I'm trying but failing to find something is BASIC that will sim keystrokes. ie, i type in something in response to a prompt, then, based on the response, the program will simulate something like an F1, or esc, or ctrl etc. Eventually I hope to use this in conjunction with microsoft speech SDK to make a speech recognition program for RTS games. Something that will run in the backround and i can just say "library" and it will hit the hotkey for library.
Thanks a bunch in advanced

**EDIT** Apologies, it's C++, not C#
Hi there.

I'm currently working on a coursework project and I've come across some trouble.
I'm making an animation and in one scene I want to have a string of text scrolling to the right, and another string of text scrolling to the left.
I am able to get one string of text scrolling, but if I try to add another one, it just screws it all up.
I've also tried adding another view port on the same scene but it still doesn't seem to do the trick. Ideally, I need to have two view ports in the scene.

Here's the code I have:
This is declared at the beginning of the code:

Code:
float fTranslate = 0.0;
Translating code:

Code:
//TRANSLATION STARTS
glPushMatrix();
//glTranslatef(0.0f,fTranslate,0.0);
glTranslatef(fTranslate,0.0f,0.0); //Determine whether the text translates side-ways (x) or upwards (y)
glTranslatef(75,200,0.0); //Starting point of text
glTranslatef(-50,-200,0.0);
glColor3f (1.0, 1.0, 1.0);
renderSpacedBitmapString(20,600,5,GLUT_BITMAP_HELVETICA_18,"We've got great deals at");

fTranslate += 2.0; //Translation speed - ALSO, + makes text go right, - makes text go left

//TRANSLATION ENDS

Hello All

I don't know if anyone can help me but I'd really appreciate it if someone can.

In MS Access 2003, you can right click on a table, select export and save it as an XML file. You can then unselect Schema etc. I want to replicate that feature through code in VB 6.0 but can't process it efficiently. The code I have written is:

Dim OLacUpload As New Access.Application
Dim PWD As String
PWD = "DATABASE PASSWORD"
OLacUpload.AutomationSecurity = msoAutomationSecurityLow
OLacUpload.OpenCurrentDatabase DATABASE LOCATION, False, PWD
ExportXML acExportTable, "TABLENAME", "FILENAME"
Set OLacUpload = Nothing

The code above works but it asks to open Access and sometimes errors if you delay the click 'Open'. What I want is for the user to click a button and just create an XML file. Is this possible? My database is password protected too if that helps?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards
 

A:Visual Basic 6.0 XML

Just read the database, and write the object to XML. If there is an export function built in to do everything, you wouldn't have to write a query to do much. You just have to configure an until loop to write each iteration of the read. I use a list to pass between the read and the write.

I too have used your export trick to make sure my XML was properly formated. But, in the end, you need to understand every character in an XML markup to properly program for it.

If you're trying to format a dynamic table structure, you'll have to build the tables to be constructed to fit your XML schema. XML is a bit particular. Example: If I need to take in an unknown.length set of dollar amounts, they need to be placed in the same element and reconstructed with a split("Delimiter goes here as string").

I found out today that XML predates the HTTP standard.. WhaWha..What?
XML was designed by NASA in the late 70's to track parts. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
